Press Releases: Mom-marketing Finesse
“Welcome to Mom-preneur Colorado!” Says the sign out front. Moms from everywhere gather in the great state of Colorado for – you guessed it – a seminar for moms who run their own businesses. From selling candles to selling Avon, coaching high end professionals in their careers to leveling the playing field for marketers everywhere – these mom’s rock.

Press releases must include all pertinent information about the event you publicize. Without that information, your press release is “just another article about your business”.
